This means that the only TCP/IP interface which apache is trying to
listen to on your machine is the loopback address of
(localhost). When it then tries a reverse DNS lookup it finds no domain
name for this address. In other words, it is not listening to any
network interface. Is this what you expect?

If you have a network card and you expect the machine to be on a
network, you'd better check out your "Listen" directive.
